Not all nudibranchs are small and beautiful. This very interesting species (Melibe fimbriata) is more than 30cm long and bright colors are missing. The snail feats sand and filters out tiny micro-organisms as a food spring.

    really weird creature! you must be amazed about what you find sometimes. great shot!
    I thought about you this week… I watched the movie “Sanctum” from James Cameron… you saw it?

  • Thank you Manon. No, I have not seen this movie with horrifying story. Some years ago I survived a cave dive in Malaysia scarcely…

    I am happy to see that you are still with us Norbert. you know, that movie was horrifying but so very intense. you should see it.anyway, that’s only a movie with visual effects. nothing real ;)

  • James Cameron is for sure a great artist. But may be I am too sensitive for movies like this. Even in tv I never look horrorfying movies. They go too much under my skin.
